Create a Monthly Dog Care Routine

Some things need to be done weekly or monthly to take care of a pet dog.  Here are some examples of the routine you will probably try to follow if you have a dog.

1.  Bathing

Some people bath every week and some people bath every month.  It is a good idea to record when you have bathed your dog and when you get to next because washing your dog too often or too far apart can be bad for your dog's skin.

2.  Nail trimming

If your dog doesn't have hard ground to wear down their nails you may have to trim them.  I trim my dog's nails once a month although some of them don't need it done.  Check your dog's nails every few weeks and trim them every month is important especially for the dew claw.

3.  Appointments

It is a good idea to write down all of your dog's appointments.  I write down grooming appointments, vet visits and Hydrotherapy (For Hugo who has elbow dysplasia).  Other things you could plan is a dog walker, dog sitter, puppy classes and dog dates.  You can also note down dates to book your next appointment.

4.  Worming and flea treatment

If you have a dog you will know about worming and flea treatments.  You should have your own schedule depending on the products you use and your dog.  So write down all of these treatments every month that you are treating your dog.
